Improving patient care through custom apps
Hospi-Call is addressing the most pressing issues facing patient care today. See how:
The Hospi-Call system facilitates direct communication between the patient and their care team
The system sends specified requests that are triaged and delegated to the appropriate care team member.
The Hospi-Call system can help saves lives through its easy to use platform, suitable for all types of smartphones and tablets
The care team receives a defined call from the patient, as opposed to the generic department bell that does not let the nurse know the nature of the call. These can range anywhere from a cup of tea, to shortness of breath.
The patient receives a notification that the call was accepted, providing assurance that someone is on the way. The department bell gave no indication if a staff member was going to tend to a call, causing the patient to repeatedly push the nurse call button.
The system sends reminders to the nurses about ongoing treatments that need to be tended to, such as tracking test results, pain check-ups, and many more, reducing the nurses cognitive load.
Both patients and staff members can operate the system directly from their personal cell phones.
Call is Redirected
The call is redirected to the appropriate professional in charge of the room and the patient’s care; the nurse, breastfeeding consultant, doctor, etc. In the case of emergencies, the call is directed to everyone. This system is more effective than the current system with a department bell, which contacts all department staff for all requests.
The app supports different languages, closing the language barrier between patient and staff.
The patients report their experiences via a computerized feedback survey once released from the hospital. The hospital database automatically saves the survey.
The system can be designed to support patients before they are admitted to the hospital and after they are discharged. This facilitates ongoing patient care and helps reduce re-admission rates.
The system is quiet and personal, only alerting the appropriate staff members. The ringing bell, in comparison, could consistently be heard throughout the hospital by all, disrupting the staff’s work and other patients’ sleep.
The system is capable of reporting the pain level of the patient sending a notification in accordance with the level.
Patients can watch instructional videos related to their personal care and respective hospital department.
An integrated management system for the department and hospital staff includes data insights and reporting regarding the speed of treatment, types of calls, and availability of rooms. This helps hospitals better understand their resource allocation.
Hospi-Call was developed in partnership with the maternity department of Hadassah Hospital, Mt. Scopus. As of January 2020, the department and its nurses are enjoying the benefits of this technological innovation
The system can be customized to any hospital, department, or healthcare facility
